Friday night was Barry Trotz’ first visit to Capital One Arena for a gameday since his then Capitals team won Game Four of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Vegas Golden Knights. Now, Barry took his new squad, the New York Islanders, into DC and got a big ole result.
In spectacular fashion, we got no goals in the first period. In ludicrous fashion, we got no goals in the second period. Josh Bailey opened scoring in the third and serial embellisher Cal Clutterbuck added another.
Islanders beat Caps 2-0.
